Hello, and Welcome to
SHNU (Shanghai Normal University).
As a key university in Shanghai, SHNU is a comprehensive local university with salient features of teacher training and particular strength in liberal arts. SHNU is abundant in teaching resources. While Xuhui features antique atmosphere, Fengxian is comparatively of modern tint. SHNU claims its unique lab center, gymnasium, and library of 3 million books for students' amenities.
With a global view, SHNU has established communications with over 200 universities and academic institutions from more than 30 countries. Moreover, a few Confucius Institutes have been established in Asia, Africa and America. Every year, more than 2,000 foreign students choose to study in SHNU, and SHNU teachers visit and study in universities abroad. SHNU students do internship overseas.
I wish all the overseas students could be accustomed to the life and rhythms of burgeoning Shanghai, and acquire either language skills or pragmatic knowledge, expand their horizon of the world, sharpen their aesthetic eyes, enhance their intellectual capacity, and perfect their moral integrity by way of kicking off a new journey in SHNU.
Despite the passage of time, moral, erudition, honesty, and action have been etched onto the memories of each SHNU person. The spirit of eternal teacher morality shall push SHNU further to keep their aims and achieve far better.
Whether you are a prospective student or professor, current student or professor, researcher, or staff member, your enthusiasm and suggestions shall be always appreciated and cherished.
Wish you all the happy hours in SHNU.

President of SHNU
